UXC Oxygen has entered into a partner agreement with B2B supply chain solution provider, Netfira.
According to Milos Lekovic, Oxygen Ariba lead, Netfira is a complementary solution to SAP/Ariba, providing the capability to connect to the Ariba supplier network directly from their accounting systems in a simple and cost-effective way.
“We are working with Netfira on a number of opportunities that would allow small to medium sized supplier organisations to automate the selling of their products to larger SAP-enabled buyers,” says Lekovic.
UXC Oxygen is also implementing the solution at a large manufacturer/distributor to allow customers to see real-time stock price and availability, and to place orders and process invoices electronically.
“The benefit of Netfira is its ability to eliminate the time and costs associated with having to undertake phone queries, fax and email ordering, confirmations and invoicing,” Lekovic says. “Using Netfira PunchOut, sellers can quickly establish a compliant, online shop which allows their buyers to see product availability, location and price. Buyers can execute orders, get purchase order notifications and receive invoices. It is all completed electronically and integrates with their accounting system.”
Netfira vice president, ANZ, Jay Hennock, says the firm is delighted to be partnering with UXC Oxygen.
“UXC Oxygen is an SAP expert and knows how to provide quick, effective wins for customers. We are working on several opportunities for both our enterprise seller and enterprise buyer products with a particular focus on Ariba/SAP-enabled, State and Federal Government departments,” Hennock says.
